requests. it is in america's interests, along with our european and canadian allies, to forge strategic partnerships with arab nations as we move forward into this new era of change in the arab world. there are very specific re reasons, strategic regional concerns, and rationales as to why the united states will support this. we did not lead this. we will not engage in unilateral action in any way, but we strongly support the international community taking action against government and leaders who behave as gaddafi is unfortunately doing so now, and we think an international border that can bring about this kind of unity is very much in america's interest. >> you just said that conditions are unfolding that will create a new environment in which people will act, including those around colonel gaddafi. does that mean that you are in the sense -- in essence giving up on trying to remove colonel gaddafi? we're aiming the message at all of the decision makers inside libya. the opposition is largely led by those who defected from the gaddafi regime or who formerly served ait. it is certainly
the islamist threats confronting america. today, americans simply do not have what washington called the right understanding of the threats from the persian gulf region. in my writings i thought to acquaint americans with the nature of these threats. whether from iran in its a religion is in iraq and lebanon, the vicious martial anti-christian, anti-jewish and anti-western brand of islam is theology exporter under saudi arabia's official, or the forces of osama bin laden, al qaeda and other sunnis islamists lead and insight. and i also argued that the united states government under both parties is fighting an islamist enemy that does not exist. and, therefore, it is a policy that runs counter to america's historical traditions, and so to its best interests. official washington islamist enemy is the stuff of hollywood farce. beat a shia or sunni, the islamists are a limited band of fanatic nihilists, ready to kill widely and indiscriminately for the pure joy of murdering. and ready to sacrifice their lives because my daughters go to university, i went hold early presidential primaries every fou
of president obama through latimer america continues today in el salvador. he spoke yesterday in chile. this is a little over half an hour. >> thank you. [applause] it is a wonderful honor to be here in chile. i want to thank your president for his outstanding leadership and hospitality that he has extended to me and my wife, my daughters, and most importantly, my mother in law. [applause] [laughter] thanks for your wonderful welcome. thanks for your friendship and a strong bonds between our people. there are several people that want to acknowledge briefly. the president of the inter- american development bank. [applause] throughout our history, this land has been called the end of the world. i come here today because in the 21st century, this nation is a vital part of our interconnected world. in an age where people are intertwined like never before, this country shows that we should not be divided by race, religion, or ethnic conflict. you have welcomed immigrants from every corner of the globe. in the celebrate a proud, indigenous heritage. people around the world are reaching for t
the america's cup. we wanted to take this opportunity after having initially briefed mayor lee on the america's cup and having him have the opportunity to actually kind of see first hand some of the venues and the real opportunities of what the america's cup is going to bring to san francisco. we are going to hear from the -- representatives from the entire americas cup family and those folks that were responsible for helping to bring this event here. without further ado, mayor lee.

>> david, i love it in your book come back america, you refer to washington as "the lala land of the east." you say they are not living in a real world. talk a little bit about how you perceive washington. >> ronald reagan talked about washington as being an island surrounded by a sea of reality. he is right. the so-called washington beltway. for the record, i live outside the beltway on land that george washington used to own. basically what we have now is a predominance of career politicians, people who may or may not have spent much time in the real world before they entered politics. then they come to washington, which is definitely not the real world, and are out of touch with reality. i think there is a growing disconnect between those who are our elected representatives and those who they represent. >> let me go in this direction because there is something in the book that i found very humorous, and i think it is jefferson who talked about congress being made up of lawyers. as i recall, 56% of people in the senate are lawyers, 36% or 37% in the house. is that a good thi

address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's

backs it up. it is families that are the solution and the ultimate building block for america. because no stimulus, no entitlement reform, no health care initiative, no educational revamp can match the power of an intact, two parent family and driving economic growth health and well being in the united states. [applause] and i come from a family where my parents did divorce. i understand the difficulty and the difficulty that is single parents have. and this is not to den grate them in any way. but it's also to say our government needs to prefer a tax code and a policy that prefers family formation and the building up of families so that children have a safe environment to grow up because no one loves them more than mom and d. no government agency, no government bureaucrat. it's mom and dad. we've been told that we need a truce on social issues and i would highly disagree with that because the truth is social conserveatism is fiscal conserveatism. i mentioned just briefly about the fair tax. i am as a tax lawyer as i told you earl

. hat's off to you. "america live" starts right now. megyn: welcome, everyone. fox news alert on libya. hi. i'm megyn kelly. in a news briefing moments ago, a top u.s. general saying that a stalemate with moammar qaddafi could be a possible outcome here. the stalemate could allow qaddafi to stay in power, that coming in as fox is learning that libya used reporters as human shields to head off a planned missile attack on a qaddafi compound. we'll have a live report from the ground in libya in a few moments. another alert, meantime, on the fallout over japan's nuclear crisis. we're getting word that nuclear officials here in the united states are launching new inspections and reviews of our own nuclear reactors in an effort to prevent a similar disaster. a new setback in efforts to prevent a nuclear meltdown in japan. workers at fukushima evacuated after smoke was seen rising from at least one of the damaged reactors. efforts to cool down overheating fuel rods are temporarily put on hold. trace gallagher has more live from our west coast newsroom. trace? >> reporter: this is a dangerous
place in america made it incumbent upon us as a body to reform social security. two years later when the american people put a democrat in the white house, i renewed my call for action. i said that republicans ready to work with the president on entitlement reform, and i repeated that call again four months ago when the voters decided to put republicans in charge of the house of representatives. throughout this time i've held out hope that our friends on the other side would rise to the occasion. if not when republicans controlled the white house, at least when they did. i was encouraged further when president obama said repeatedly back in 2009 that his administration would seek to work with us on serious entitlement reform that preserves the safety net for our seniors, for people with disabilities and which also puts on a firmer, stable footing for generations to come. so the president has acknowledged the seriousness of the problem. he has noted himself that calls are escalating even as the population is getting older, creating the perfect storm for a fiscal crisis that dwarfs even
thought it was a good idea. >> america cannot use the military wherever repression occurs. given the costs and risks, we must measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting. on behalf of what's right. in this particular country, libya at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect on a horrific scale. they had a unique ability to stop the violence and a mandate for action. a brought coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also have the title stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. america's responsibility has a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a detrayal of who we are. some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. the us of america is different. >> the united states of america is different. he is being very careful to talk about this particular country. this particular moment. then describing ve
